I recently lost all the icons in the windows start up taskbar tray. I don't know how it happened? The one I was most use is the speaker icon to open volume control.
I have now recovered this but before doing so I have managed to include the volume control in the windows start up programmes when logging on!
I cannot find how to stop it loading? There are no programmes showing in the start up folder on the start menu?

Thanks for replying, but I do not have the programme showing anywhere. It is not on the taskbar tray or in the start up folder?
I originally added the programme from settings, taskbar&start menu, and add progamme?
Regards

That was for the volume you said was in the startup.

For the others, is it the systray on the right or the quick launch on the left? If the quick launch, right click the taskbar and select the ones you want. If the systray, usually just restarting your system wil solve it.

Hi
It all began with my system tray on the right, all the icons disappeared from there? I tried to re insert my volume icon by adding it to the taskbar start up, I later found I only needed to check the box in the multi media window!
Since adding the programme to the taskbar, the volume controls open every time I log on, but the programme is not displayed in the system tray?
Thanks for your time

Hello again

I have gone into msconfig, the lost programmes are still checked in the boxes but cannot see the volume control programme anywhere?
I really appreciate your interest and assistance.

Start button, settings, control panel, multimedia, place a check mark in the box that says to show volume control on the taskbar.

Also, I can't seem to figure out if you've solved any of the original problems? Is the volume settings program still appearing on startup?

If so, post your start up items:

Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and press ok....go to software, startup, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

Hello again

Just to clarify my latest position!
I am still getting the volume controls opening when logging on but they are not displayed in the start up folder.
I have managed to re insert the volume icon into the taskbar tray by checking the box as suggested, but there are no other icons displayed in there?
I have pasted the information below as requested, these appear to be all the missing programmes, but cannot see the elusive volume control!
There is one thing that may be a clue, I recently installed Macfee cleaner and have just upgraded to AOL 7 in last few days.


Msinfo:
Microsoft IntelliType Pro Registry (Machine Run) C:\PROGRAM FILES\MICROSOFT HARDWARE\KEYBOARD\SpeedKey.exe
SystemTray Registry (Machine Run) SysTray.Exe
LoadPowerProfile Registry (Machine Service) Rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,LoadCurrentPwrScheme
SchedulingAgent Registry (Machine Service) mstask.exe

Once again thanks a million for your time.

Chris

What other icons do you want on the taskbar? The less, the better. You can open any program you wish to from the start menu.

Also, try unchecking the keyboard item in the msconfig and see if the volume control program stops opening.
